Free Condom distribution in Fort Worth TX
HELP distributes more than 100,000 condoms each year through our RAP program. 60% of gay men in Tarrant County reported not having a condom when they needed one within the past year. This lack of condom availability is a major factor in risk-taking behavior. We distribute condoms to area gay bars, local organizations serving the gay community, and through our Condom of the Month program.For more information about RAP:

Why We Focus on Prevention

In 1994, three women who realized that prevention was not only more cost effective, but also more humane than after the fact interventions founded the Health Education Learning Project (HELP). Since then, HELP has been on the forefront of providing comprehensive programs in the areas of HIV prevention, women’s health, and support groups for HIV positive individuals and LGBT youth.

We recently added two new programs for mobilizing our local community to join in the fight against HIV/AIDS and STIs. The first initiatives under these programs were to develop a one-stop-shop for HIV services in Tarrant County, and to conduct the largest community health assessment ever done in Tarrant County focusing on the needs of the LGBT community. The success of these initiatives laid the groundwork for our being awarded a new grant to broaden our scope. This new grant includes mobilizing the community to prevent other sexually transmitted infections as well. If you are interested in joining the fight, we welcome your support.

At HELP we understand the success of our organization and the programs we offer is made possible through the tremendous support we receive from our friends and supporters in the community. Please contact us with any comments or questions, or if you want to volunteer for one of our programs.
